This Chant responsory is from the Gospel according to St. John. The image is of St. Padre Pio receiving Holy Eucharist. The Latin and English follow:
Verbum caro factum est et habitavit in nobis.
Et vidimus gloriam eius,gloriam quasi Unigeniti a Patre, plenum gratiae et veritatis.
In principio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. (John 1:14)
And we have beheld His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)
And we have beheld His glory…
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
And we have beheld His glory…

I included two hymns in this video, the first is “Justus Germinabit” compiled from the book of Hosea. The second is “Passer Invenit” from Psalm 84:4-5. The lyrics and rough translation to both is as follows:
Alleluia. Justus germinabit sicut lilium: et florebit in aeternum ante Dominum. Alleluia.
Alleluia. The just shall spring like the lily: and shall flourish forever before the Lord. Alleluia
Passer invenit sibi domum, et turtur nidum sibi, ubi ponat pullos suos : altaria tua, Domine virtutum, rex meus, et Deus meus. Beati qui habitant in domo tua, Domine; in sæcula sæculorum laudabunt te.
For the sparrow has found herself a house, and the turtle a nest for herself where she may lay her young ones: Your altars, O Lord of hosts, my king and my God. Blessed are they that dwell in your house, O Lord: they shall praise you for ever and ever.
With musical direction from Bob Kirby, the youth choir from Holy Family Parish in Rockland, MA share “Sounds of Praise”.

This hymn is taken in its parts from the Song of Songs of Solomon. The painting, which I really love, is Joseph teaching the child Jesus carpentry. It is called “Childhood of Christ” by Gerard van Honthorst. The Latin lyrics and rough English translation follow:
Flores apparuerunt in terra nostra, Tempus putationis advenit; Vox turturis audita est in terra nostra.
Surge, amica mea, speciosa mea, et veni: columba mea, in foraminibus petræ, in caverna maceriæ.
The flowers have appeared in our land, the time of pruning is come: the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come: my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the hollow places of the wall.
